I got my chicks Easter weekend, April 11th. Some were already a couple weeks old, others were day olds. But still no eggs. I feed them a layer mix, they have oyster shell and I feed them treats of mashed hard boiled eggs, cottage cheese, bread, salad, fruit & yogurt (not all at once, but a variety) They are out in the yard most of each day dining on grass & bugs, sunning themselves and just being spoiled rotten chickens. When will the free-loading end? Are they just like teenagers, once you feed them they're just going to hang out and do nothing? Is there anything I can do differently to "inspire" they to get busy?
